A NAKED BODY MOVES A STRANGER TO EMPATHY
PARTHENON is a slippery diptych that questions the limits of our perception.
"A decidedly Lily Baldwin affair utilizing her expressionistic movements to full effect, a push-pull of domestic dominance."
— Kevin Rakestraw, Film Pulse
"An incredible central performance by Lily Baldwin."
— Fiona Underhill, Jump Cut Online
"Compelling and unique in its vision, furthered by a strong lead performance by Lily Baldwin."
— Emily Doe, shorts programmer, Sundance Film Festival
"Deeply intimate. A rich, elusive network of ideas and responses... one of the best films of 2017."
— BFI critic Michael Ewins, Notes on Seeing
"A minimal work of pure tension. The personal and the communal resound strongly…with delicate direction of its actors."
— Jose Sarmiento Hinojosa, DESISTFILM
"The argument plays out less like a conventional scene than an expressionistic dance piece—the camera capturing their body movements with striking agility and spontaneity."
— James Slaymaker, Vague Visages
